Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has revealed he planned on playing a 4-2-4 formation with the Blues this season before tweaking his system.
The 47-year-old opted for a 4-3-3 system in his early days at Stamford Bridge but a 3-0 humbling at the Emirates to Arsenal forced Conte into a rethink.
The Italian decided to play a 3-4-3 formation and the Blues haven’t conceded a league goal since September 24th after Conte’s tweak.
Conte’s side have also scored an astonishing 16 goals in five league games but the former Juventus boss has revealed he was intent on playing on an ultra-attacking 4-2-4 system with the club.
